Sparks flew on Friday’s episode of Jeoaprdy! as a Blair County Native ended one of the longest streaks in the show’s history by the narrowest of margins. Danielle Maurer is a 2008 Graduate of Central High School in Martinsburg. She had applied to be on Jeopardy! for over 15 years, finally getting the call in January. She upset Mattea Roach, who is the Top 5 All-Time for longest Jeopardy! Win Streak at 23 games, and most money won.
Maurer clinched victory after getting Final Jeopardy! correct, with Roach getting it wrong. The winning margin was just $1. Maurer attributed her knowledge to owning more books than probably anyone should, and she used to read textbooks just for fun.
She will return to the show tonight at 7pm on ABC 23.
